Welcome to the iChoose Leadership Values Program!

This program is comprised of 16 lessons spread out over four units with the goal of helping teenagers learn leadership values and teaching them how to apply them to their own lives from leadership expert John C. Maxwell.

 These values are recognized by some of the largest and most successful companies in the world. iChoose was designed to provide students with an environment for leadership values to be introduced, practiced, and shared. Because many of today’s teenagers equate leadership with position, abuse of power, bribery, and corruption, few young people have a healthy and correct understanding of what leadership is and how they can apply it to their lives and the lives of others.

John C. Maxwell has partnered with educational institutions around the world to produce this program and reverse the negative portrayal of leadership. This program offers a desirable portrait of leadership based on values that can be applicable to a student’s life — values that teenagers can admire, implement, and choose to aspire to for a more positive and sustained style of leadership.

The Small Group Method of Growth

The teaching method of small groups is very simple but highly effective. Small groups employ two-way communication in an empowering environment. Values are not taught; they are explored. During a small group, each person participates, and some are given the chance to lead, but all students share from their own experience. As a result, everyone grows together.

Small Groups Are Effective Because...

  • They are conducted in groups of four to eight people.
  • They usually take between 30 minutes for four people and 60 minutes for eight people.
  • They give every participant a “voice” and an opportunity to win.
  • They are designed to emphasize and promote personal growth through leadership values.
